The Banff Mountain Film Festival has once again begun its tour of the UK and Ireland, showcasing a selection of the best climbing and adventure films from one of the world’s most prestigious mountain film festivals.
Visiting over 40 countries across all 7 continents, the Banff World Tour brings inspiration and big screen adventure to roughly 400,000 outdoor enthusiasts around the world each year.
Starting last week, the Banff World Tour will visit more than 40 locations across the UK and Ireland over the course of the next four months.
This year’s line-up features climbing giants such as Yuji Hirayama and Hazel Findlay, as well as a whole host of other action packed films, including surfing in Norway, wingsuit flying in China and the Alps, white-water kayaking in Mexico, mountain biking and freestyle skiing. Some of the films being showcased on this year’s tour include:
The Sensei (Reel Rock 8) - East meets West and old meets new. Forty-three-year-old Yuji Hirayama is one of the great legends of modern climbing while twenty-something world class boulderer Daniel Woods, is one of the strongest humans in the climbing worlds. The duo team up for an expedition of a lifetime, but when Daniel-san travels to Japan to prove himself worthy of Hirayama's mentorship, the question becomes, who learns from whom?
North of the Sun - Tucked between the cold Atlantic Ocean and the rocky slopes of a remote, Arctic island, two young Norwegian adventurers discover their own private playground. They build themselves a cabin out of flotsam while clearing the beach of debris, then spend the long winter skiing and surfing in the haunting low light.

There will also be more than £40,000 of giveaways and prizes at the shows from the Banff tour partners, including Osprey, Jottnar, Buff, Keen, Cotswold Outdoor, Black Diamond, Clif Bar, and Sea to Summit.
